Finding Meaning at Any Age

 Finding Meaning 

Just recently I saw the movie “The Grudge Match” starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro. This movie is about two former boxers of championship caliber. Prior, they split two previous fights. They didn’t like each other then and do not like each other now.  They decided to have another boxing match, even though they haven’t trained but have aged. So, the two of them start training for this fight, which is hyped in the Pittsburgh area.

Although not a great movie, the story depicts two individuals that have a passion for fighting. That passion never left them even though they matured. They still have that” fire in the belly.” It wasn’t difficult for them to come out of retirement and train. It showed that they were willing to sacrifice and put in hard work for something in which they believed. And for Stallone’s character, fighting gave him meaning and he was willing to risk physical injury in the process.

When you have passion, love what you’re doing and that activity gives meaning, it’s not difficult to understand why someone would risk injury. Just ask any professional football player or for that matter any past player and ask them if they would do it again. Their answer more than likely is of course
The moral of the story is that when you have meaning and passion in your life you are blessed and more than likely have little regret about the past, involved in the present and look forward to future. Age is simply irrelevant in many respects.

And don’t forget to keep moving, laughing, smiling, bonding, loving and appreciating in the process.
